FA invests £1m in blind football

The Football Association has just opened a bespoke facility at St George's Park Training Centre, near Burton upon Trent in Staffordshire, for footballers who cannot, or who can only barely, see.

At the same time it is announcing a £1 million investment in blind football, hoping to capturing gold in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio. A game was laid on at the launch and Rob Bonnet went to watch.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Friday 7 November.
